We all know Taylor Swift is one to pen her real life experiences to produce massive hit songs that every girl (even if half of us claim not to) can relate to. In this case, a relationship with a bad boy gone wrong. Ring a bell? Swift is currently promoting Red, her new album set to be released on Oct. 22, and has previewed a few tracks which stick to her country pop sounds. However, in her newest release "I Knew You Were Trouble" comes seasoned with a little, wait for it.... dubstep.
The song features a hook infused with dub sounds over Swifts ever so powerful lyrics. With the help of Shellback and Max Martin, a Swedish production duo, the songwriting and vibe mixes a few traditional Swiftisms a la Skrillex to create a track that will probably be on repeat for the next month. Check it out below!
As the seasons change we experience the urge to change! One of the most fun things to spruce up is hair color.

If you're looking to perk up your look this season, here are some of our favorite shades!

If you haven't checked out Nima Yamini's Thursday night party at Union Square Lounge then you are slacking. Of course the party, entitled Ruin Your Friday Thursday will be rowdy again tonight.
I was also informed that there will be 3 model agencies (Red, Wilhelmina, Q) involved with the event. There always seems to be some type of twist to the party when the models come out.
Adding to the chaos, DJ GianCarlo of 718 Managment will be in the house and a special indie performance by Tuossent.
